FAQs

Indian spices turmeric powder garam masala cumin seeds curry powder recipe

How authentic is this recipe?

All our recipes are authentic and traditional family recipes passed along by my Mom and family members.

Does the sauce need to be refrigerated or frozen?

The curry sauce is shelf-stable and can be stored at room temperature. It needs to be refrigerated once it is opened.

Why is the Garam Masala spice packet provided separately?

Most Indian sauces in the market add Garam Masala spices into the sauce. Over time, their flavor could deteriorate. Finishing your dish with organic Garam Masala garnish makes the flavors 'pop'.
